    Driveline Vibration Issue - Possible Root Cause

    This guy ran over a mattress and decided to keep going. The ensuing jumble finally whipped around enough to put a tear in the gas tank, the subsequent lack of fuel is what finally brought this vehicle to its knees.

    It had still managed to drive 30 more miles decently with a 60lb tangle wrapped around the driveshaft.

    This genius complained that the vehicle had a "shimmy" when driving it high speeds.


    This is what the dealership found..............
